Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The "ANTI" FURTHUR FORUM? Phil's going 70!

you assholes....


Phil "mother fuckin'" Lesh is gonna turn 70 years old tomorrow and he is still an absolutely VITAL human being, kicking ass and taking names -- AND his young brother-in-arms Mr. Bob "mother fuckin'" Weir is in the band too and they are holding a throwdown in the mother of all heady-towns San Francisco California!

but the Archive of Previous Achievements is still just mucking around in the tangle of tape and notes and pressure pads of 30 years ago... instead of keeping up with life?

whether they are some sort of fucked up weirdos or not -- it is the best kind of weird -- and not celebrating it in its most vital form right down to the last wispy mist from the crash of the wave rising up in the air is an out and out failure of the very weirdness you are beholden to.

why does such a lame, sniveling, back-looking, no-fun bunch collect here? i mean... THEY are so cool and keep making music, and putting it up here for free along with the Legacy.... and the population here is so indifferent to 2010....

This Forum = Weak Sauce

I haven't gotten the impression there is a major anti-Furthur sentiment around here. Personally, I could care less about post-Jerry Dead, and I think a lot of us are in that boat...BUT, that's entirely different different from being "anti-Further". There's really no relevance between how I feel about the Grateful Dead way back when and what I feel about what Phil and Bobby are doing in 2010.

Did I miss something?

I listened to the 3/5/2010 show the other day and it was pretty good. Even contemplating going to a show.

I guess you didn't read my review of 3-6-10, I was blown away.

No its not Jerry and yeah Phil sings poorly but the VIBE is HOT and I love Phil as much as I loved the real Jerry, not the old worn out vessel I saw in his last few years.

I tried to get the crowd to sing Happy Birthday but everyone was to dazed by the Time we were having to catch on-lol.

Remember when the stubborn ones don't go to the shows its more room for Dancin!

SO sorry to not being in a position to celebrate Mr. Lesh's milestone in person at said shindig.

There ARE some representatives here who have been touting the present tour. I advocate personally for the 3-6-10 show as a example of the outstanding stamina of the soon to be septuagenarian bass player and his super freak powers.

I toast Mr. Lesh and wish him the best as he undertakes his next solar orbit.

So say we all?

Gotta second the thoughts on 3/6/10.

It will be a historical show for Furthur.

70??? Are you kidding me?

The dude is amazing.

If by keeping up with life you mean listening to a weak approximation of music that was already done,no thanks.Maybe it's time for you to move on and try something different instead of living in the past with Phil and Bobby.I find the vast majority of the forumites intelligent and well rounded and wide ranging in their tastes in music.On the other hand there are assholes like yourself telling people what they should and should not do.

Went to the show in Portland on Monday, had a good time and enjoyed the band. And have been listening to the show from Denver on Saturday, check it out.

I agree that your post is a little too hysterical. Seems like plenty of folks here are going to and enjoying the current tour. On balance, I'd say that forum-ites have been far more positive about this tour than The Dead last year, and that seems to accurately reflect the quality of the shows themselves. Personally I'm sort of indifferent about the Jerry-less Dead, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun. Hell, I go see bands all the time that I know nothing about. Going to see Bob and Phil seems like a perfectly worthwhile experience to me.

The band is re-energized, playing on point, mixing up setlists, and having fun on stage. Jerry IS, and always will be the epitome of the Grateful Dead. Love him eternally, miss him, but this band is tight, and I'm having a blast watching them rock out to kids and seniors from age 7 to 70 in the audience. Summer can't come soon enough.
